YMCA STAIR CLIMB FOR LOS ANGELES
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2018
ONLINE REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
This year we celebrate the Stair Climb for Los Angeles' 25th anniversary! This iconic downtown Los Angeles event commemorates 25 years of conquering challenges and raising urgently needed funds for our community.
At 1,005 feet, the US Bank Tower is home to the tallest stairwell west of the Mississippi. During the Stair Climb for Los Angeles, 4,000 participants race or walk up 1,664 steps (75 stories) then take the elevator down to the street level where a Block Party awaits - complete with games, live bands, food trucks, and a beer garden.
Welcome Stair Climb Grand Marshal 2018: television personality, Julie Chen! Julie comes to us from hit shows like Big Brother and The Talk on CBS. She’s also all about family, fitness and community. We’re excited to have her leading the celebration of the Ketchum-Downtown Y’s 25 years of changing lives through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
The best part is that every dollar raised strengthens impactful YMCA community programs in and around Downtown Los Angeles. Fundraising supports subsidized YMCA program participation for children, teens, families, and seniors in some of the most under-resourced neighborhoods in the city.
